Doing some embroidery

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
On my vacation time, I've been doing some hand embroidery work, which my wife taught me how to do a few weeks ago. I'm working on what will be twelve red shields with the symbols of the Twelve Apostles. I'm about half-way through the set. The one pictured in the ring above is James the Less, signified by a hand saw.

These shields are to go on the red velvet orphrey of the red cope that I have just made (the last piece of my red solemn set that I made for my ordination to the diaconate). I'll post a picture when it's all completed.
